What to Wear for Engagement or Portrait Sessions!

Image
Engagement and portrait sessions are one of my favorite things about being a photographer (well, and shooting weddings of course). It is a great opportunity for me to get to know my clients, learn all about you, who you are and what and who you love! Engagement sessions help a couple become more comfortable in front of my camera (because let's face it, having your picture taken is awkward) so that you feel more relaxed in showing off your personality and relationship before the big day. Portrait sessions are even more casual, and allow for a relaxing time of laughing and getting to know one another. 

You want to look your best in your photos, so I thought it would be a good idea to write a guide on what people should wear for their engagement or portrait sessions! All of these are applicable to portrait and engagement sessions but a few are just specific to engagement sessions.

Be You!
You are the subject matter of my photos, so you want to wear something that reflects who you are a…

Joan & Carlos :: 8-5-12 :: Wedding in Chino

Image
Joan and Carlos had such a unique and fabulous wedding. They only became engaged right before the fourth of July and decided to get married on a special date, Carlos parents' anniversary. Instead of waiting a year and a month, they decided to plan the wedding in a whole month! There were only 10 people in attendance at the wedding, including the bride and groom, their immediate family and the pastor so it was quite small and beautifully intimate. There were a lot of DIY and homemade elements, including the strawberry vegan cake made by her sister-in-law. They incorporated a superhero and comic book theme into all elements into the wedding, including the decorations and clothing colors, the boutonnieres/corsages which were bottle cap pins with comic book characters and phrases, the invitations (which were more of keepsakes since they didn't have time to mail them) and the cake. It was such a delight to be a part of their day and document their lives and their families coming to…
